More Details

Similar to Digitalis purpurea f. albiflora but more compact and with a pale pink blush to the outer petals and lighter, almost white speckled throats. Foxgloves make some of the very best cottage garden, early summer garden plants and cut flowers. If you pick the king flower – the main spire, you create lots of prince flowers and the plants will then go on flowering for longer. Bees and butterflies love them too.

It’s pointless to send me a survey when my bulbs and plants are not yet with me
